"Cut right down! Cut right down!" The instruction from Ho Sensei still echoes in my ears.. "Cut it like you want to split the opponent's head in half."
Many kenshi, especially young ones, tend to only tap the opponent when striking. I know this is not good, but sometimes I still do it without thinking.
More suburi is needed..
In the past few weeks I trained only once a week which is really terrible. However, there're something else also that needs my dedication also at the moment. Meanwhile, I will have to make sure that I split my opponent's head in half, well in my mind.
About this blog..
This is a blog that I started in April 2006, just after I first put on my bogu (kendo armour). It collects the advices given by more experienced kendo practitioners as well as those from my own experiences. Both technical and the mental aspects of kendo are written in the blog. I hope someone will find them useful or interesting at least!
